Rights and Responsibilities

The most basic responsibility of a student is to study and move forward in intellectual development while taking advantage of the many opportunities provided in a university environment for all-around personal growth, development and maturation.

Within the university emphasis is placed on the development of each individual's recognition and acceptance of personal and social responsibilities. High ethical and moral standards of conduct are a part of the university's mission and its contribution to the well-being of society.

Students who join UCF agree to respect the rights of their colleagues, to abide by University regulations, to obey local, state and federal laws, and to not lie, plagiarize, falsify university records or documents, cheat, steal, harass, assault, use illicit drugs, trespass, or possess explosives or incendiary devices.
